Plot Synopsis:

The Ladykillers follows the hilarious capers of a group of small-time crooks, taking on more they can handle in the form of their sweet, but slightly dotty, elderly landlady Mrs Wilberforce (BAFTA Award-winning actress Katie Johnson; How To Murder A Rich Uncle). This group of seedy misfits are planning a security van robbery and rent a room from Mrs Wilberforce in her rickety Victorian house next to King's Cross station from which to base their operation. To conceal their true purpose, they pose as a string quartet, though they cannot play a note and are in fact miming to a recording of Boccherini's Minuet. The gang pull off the robbery but none of them could have predicted that their greatest obstacle to escaping with the loot would be their tiny hostess.

The Ladykillers features an all-star line-up of the finest comedy actors of the era: Alec Guinness (Kind Hearts and Coronets, The Lavender Hill Mob) plays the gang's mastermind 'Professor Marcus'; Cecil Parker (A French Mistress) is Claude otherwise known as 'Major Courtney'; Peter Sellers (I'm Alright Jack) is Harry aka 'Mr Robinson'; Herbert Lom (The Pink Panther) is Louis aka 'Mr Harvey' and Danny Green (A Kid For Two Farthings) plays One Round also known as 'Mr Lawson'. Jack Warner, Frankie Howerd and Kenneth Connor also appear in supporting roles.
